News & Interviews for Still Star-Crossed: Season 1
Goofing on The Bachelorette at least can be a bit of fun. With Still Star-Crossed, you're only likely to get tired head -- and in a hurry.
What remains to be seen is whether Still Star-Crossed can find that sweet spot again as it develops - or whether it will continue to coast along on its lavish, gorgeous aesthetic.
The writing is so scattered, it's hard to find anyone, Montague or Capulet, to root for. A plague on both their houses.
Still Star-Crossed is off the tracks from the opening moments. Rhimes' customarily snappy dialogue has been replaced with something that sounds like special-ed Shakespeare, interrupted by the occasional thudding anachronism.
It's all too little too late due to the confusing first half that won't be Shakespearean enough for scholars and too confusing for those long-removed from high school English class.
